When you register a domain name, you need to supply a genuine home address, email account and telephone number as per the policy approved by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). This information, though, is not kept only by the registrar, but is accessible to the general public on WHOIS check web sites as well, so anyone can view your details and lots of people may not be satisfied with this. Consequently, a lot of registrar companies have launched the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which hides the domain name registrant’s information and upon a WHOIS check, people will view the details of the registrar company, not the domain owner’s. This service is also called Whois Privacy Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these expressions refer to the exact same service. As of now, most of the Top-Level Domains around the world allow Whois Privacy Protection to be added, but there are still country-specific extensions that do not support this service.

Whois Privacy Protection in Shared Web Hosting

Enabling the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain registered through our company is remarkably easy in case you’ve got a shared web hosting. You can achieve this through the very same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you manage the hosting account – you will only have to go to the Registered Domains section where all your domain names will be displayed and to click on the “Whois Privacy Protection” symbol, which will be available for each gTLD or ccTLD that supports the protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the Whois Privacy Protection service or deactivate it completely – if you wish to transfer a certain domain to some other registrar company. With the Whois Privacy Protection service, you can conceal your private or business contact information with only several clicks and stop worrying that your info might be obtained by unauthorized individuals.
